Help me figure out my hair type please!

 It's fine medium and even coarse here and there. It's pretty thick (4 1/2 inch pony)  It seems wavy,  but then some places it wants to turn into weird little ropes.  I can't get decent clumps - it's almost like my hair can't find e nough buddies with the same pattern, so it goes frizzy like crazy.  My hair used to be stick straight and would never take a perm. Now after 3 kids,  it decided it was done being straight.

    Hi @mhcanupp : I would say your hair has a 2a curl pattern, but to figure out what your hair needs, it would be helpful to know your hair properties (hair width, porosity, density). There is some info in the newbie threads that can help.
